Just Another Statistic …

Come January 22, 2013, 40 years will have passed since the Roe v. Wade decision. I’m not typically an outspoken person, but it’s very difficult to remain silent when so many innocent lives are still being taken.

For those of you who aren’t aware of the scope of this decision, here’s a peek into the 2011 – 2012 Annual Report from Planned Parenthood, the United States largest abortion provider.

This report shows that abortion services accounted for only 3% of services they provided. (See page 4 of the report)

Only 3% … That doesn’t so bad, does it?

Well, let’s look at that statistic from a different angle. That same report says that in 2011 they performed 333,964 abortion services. (See page 5 of the report) 

Let’s break that down a bit more.

That means Planned Parenthood alone performed …

27,830.33 abortions per month

6,422.38 abortions per week

914.97 abortions per day

38.12 abortions per hour

0.64 abortions per minute


1 abortion every 94.4 seconds.

1 life intentionally snuffed out every 94.4 seconds.

Only 3% …

Sounds like 3% too many.
